Now this one is one of my favourite bags. It can do everything and has taken a beating and come up smiling. I have used it as a travel bag, an overnight bag, a work bag, a casual bag. It has a nice A5 sized pocket at the front for a planner or Filofax.
I used to love Orca bags. Somewhere along the line they changed their name from Orca to Tabitha and on Red Direct they sold out the old Orca ones. I bought a tan one and a brown one. I got two for the price of one.
Soft squarish bag with metal zipper and two adjustable straps. Has one unlined outside pocket in A5 size. Inside it is lined in cotton with a zippered pocket and a pouch pocket.
It is square but not hard so everything sits in place nicely without tumbling into a pile. Light, hardwearing and the wide soft straps are the most comfortable of any bag I own. They are just perfect for carrying via both hand and shoulder. This bag doesn’t look big but fits enormous amounts. A4 slides in with ease. The metal zip is really heavy duty and slides smooth as a dream.
